    Pasta bake.


    I'm officially declaring I hate pasta & rice. I'm not eating them again.

    Pasta is great. But it must be accompanied by loads of garlic. It's the law.

    In fact just about every food stuff benefits from loads of garlic.

    Garlic is fine, and pasta sauce, and all the things that went into it, apart from the pasta.

    The same with rice.

    Over the last few months every time I've eaten either pasta or rice I've felt sick after, it really seems to upset my stomach. So from now on, curry & naan or pasta sauce and extra veg for me.

    Does bread do the same? I wonder if you've developed a gluten intolerance?

    Yes, but it's not as bad as pasta/rice, and I hardly eat bread already :(

    Home made fish pie with hard boiled eggs hidden in it. Yum.
    Made a massive pie so we’ll be having it again tomorrow night.

    Veg pizza, all grown at the farm we've come to for tea. I'm not going to get on the scales for a month after I go home.

    My meal planning is now going to be based on 'what can't my husband fudge up?'

    It seems he's forgotten how to cook as I did everything while he worked over lock down.

    Now I'm back to school it's his job to make tea - so far it's just been enormous portions of pasta!

    I'm never going to fit into my (already) very tight work trousers!
